    You are in for a serious shock when you hit the real world, Oh and please define "Chav" in your terms I'm curious to see whether I'll be labelled under it due to the music I listen to not all of us love headbanging to rock songs or listening to up and coming indie bands.

    I'm worried that University will be full of commoners and I won't be able to mix I'd rather be eathing pheasant and drinking wine, not downing vodka shots at some cheap nightclub. I wan't refinery, not chavs and tarts.
    I don't mean to sound snobby or anything. I just wan't to enjoy my time at University.

    I'm hoping to study Law at Sussex BTW.

    Haha. I think it's safe to say that you wont enjoy yourself at university.

    Epic Fail on that count. You sound like a bit of a bigot to be honest. Do you wear large amounts of Tweed by any chance??

    Secondly, great, you're getting good A-Level grades. Grades don't mean that you are socially adept, and are in no way an indicator of whether you will fit in at uni.

    TBH I have a really open mind about this. If a so called "chav" makes his/her way to university level education, I would have no issue with them and even have a mutual respect for them.

    A lot of "chavs" have no backing from their parents with regards to education. If a "chav" therefore did make it to university, it would take a lot of inner strength from the individual.

    Either way, what difference does it make? Its a social tag for many deprived youths.

    Chavs on their own and chavs in a group are two completely different things.

    So a couple may make it, but they'd probably conform to what everyone else deems acceptable.

    Your year would be so large that you could easily avoid them; it's not secondary school.

    If you get into uni, you're not much of a chav are you?

    Unless you mean
    "Will there be people at uni who dress differently to me, possibly in a frightfully common manner?"
    in which case the answer is yes.

    Chav is just another word to marginalize and describe white working class males.
    So if you mean will there be any proles at your uni,then I imagine there will be a few.
    Don't worry,just don't share a bath with them,i hear all they want to do is fill it with coal.

    Because of my GCSE's, my predicted grades are All E's I scored BCDD at AS and the the B was in history. I've droped two A levels and I've taken on two more AS to compensate this.

    Are my chances of getting to University now ruined because of these predictions?. How much weight to predicted grades have? I would hate to get my grades and be without a University place

    I'm looking to study law at somewhere like Winchester.

    I want to apply to Leeds Met, Surrey and Coventry. All for Law. I know they are not great Universitys, but I've wanted to do Law for about five years now. I can't risk applying to better ones.

    At my university they're thankfully a rare breed, or an invisible minority

    A frightening amount attend a local college though (thankfully not my old sixth form). I feel for the people who try to study there, and I hope none are intending to go to universities, or at least real ones.

    I switched courses just before Christmas, and on my previous course there were very few other males to interact with. The only other guy I found I could talk too was indeed what some people would describe as a chav.

    At the start he rarely came to lectures, but he budged his ideas up after a while, he would wear tracksuits and chains, and wouldn't talk much and sit in quite slouchy positions. He was a nice enough guy, but I could tell from the way he acted in the way he would talk, you wouldn't want to get in his way and what not!
